Congressman-elect Jim Himes on the show (Wednesday 12/17) to talk about his transition into his new job. Last month, the Courant's Jesse Hamilton wrote a nice profile about how things are going with the transition, and what he has to look forward to. And, he blogged about his new office space in DC (I guess he got a pretty nice spot!). Meanwhile, Hamilton's profile of Chris Shays had this headline: "Shays Unsure of Where Loss Will Take Him."
Bloomberg reported on this interesting note: Goldman Sachs' PAC gave 5 grand to Himes, two weeks after the election. During the election itself, they'd backed Shays' campaign...this despite Himes' ties to the investment banking community, and Goldman Sachs in particular.
Our talk comes in the midst of a series of meetings between Himes and his new constituents...he'll listen to their concerns about the economy. Thursday, Dec. 18 from 6 to 7:30 p.m. in the second-floor Fine Arts Room at the downtown Bridgeport Public Library, 925 Broad St. and 6:30 to 8 on Wednesday at Yearwood Center, room 201, 90 Fairfield Ave., Stamford.
